# Is Poppy's Valiant Fighter applied on full damage or excess?

Poppy's innate ability Valiant Fighter is as following:

Any damage dealt to Poppy that exceeds 10% of her current health is reduced by 50%. This does not reduce damage from structures.

But is the 50% reduction applied to the full damage or only the excess of the 10%?

In other words if Poppy took a hit that would do 12% of her total health in damage would it be reduced to 6% (12%/2) of her total health or 11%(10%+2%/2) of her total health?

I did some poking around on the wiki you linked to, and found my initial answer was wrong.

Valiant Fighter is a passive ability that will activate whenever Poppy takes damage that exceeds 10% of her current health, reducing that damage by 50%.

Valiant Fighter's damage reduction only applies to the portion of the damage that actually exceeds 10% of Poppy's health, not the entire damage.

For example: Poppy has 1200/2000 health and is being hit by a 400 damage nuke (after resistances). She will then take: 1200 × 10% regular damage plus (400-10% × 1200) × 50% reduced damage, which will total in 120+120=260 damage taken.

Valiant Fighter's damage reduction occurs after armor and magic resistance's reduction.

Valiant Fighter does not affect True damage.

So what you are trying to say is that it is on the full damage, not just excess of the 10% – Blem Mar 24 '12 at 0:49
@Blem No, I was wrong. Only the portion over 10% is reduced. – Raven Dreamer Mar 24 '12 at 0:53
120 + 120 = 260? – VanBuzzKill Jan 25 '13 at 20:52
